Pay with credit card or cash in Istanbul


Choice is a beautiful thing. You’ve asked and we’ve listened and now all riders in Turkey are able to pay for their Uber rides using cash or credit card.

Although credit cards are common you’d be surprised to know that, in 2015, only 29% of people in Turkey have completed a transaction with their credit card in the past year.* Another study done by Turkey Statistical Institute shows that percentage of credit card holders, who are not willing to use their credit card for online transactions are above 44%.**

As Uber, we’re aiming to provide reliable transportation options for everyone, everywhere. Therefore, you now have the option to pay your uberXL and taxi rides with cash or credit card.
